“Shedinburgh Fringe Festival is one of the most talked about elements of this year’s virtual Edinburgh Fringe” The Stage
SHEDINBURGH FRINGE FESTIVAL launched in 2020 and was an online festival presenting the very best of the Fringe stalwarts of theatre, music and comedy, and the best new acts, all performed live from sheds across the country and streamed into people’s homes.
Created as a directed response to the uncertain future facing both venues and artists in 2020, SHEDINBURGH’s objective was to shout loud about the Fringe’s vital role in global culture, celebrate its past successes and breakthrough artists and provide a platform for the talent that would have been on had the Edinburgh Festival Fringe not been cancelled.
SHEDINBURGH took place between 14 August – 5 September with daily livestreamed events including ‘one night only’ unique shed based versions of performances from established Fringe favourites and slots for new artists, featuring shows from Jayde Adams, Helen Baer, Tim Crouch, Rosie Jones, Adam Kashmiry, Yolanda Mercy, Deborah Frances-White, Gary McNair, Tobias Menzies, Sara Pascoe, Steen Raskopoulos, Jack Rooke, Joe Sellman-Leava and more.
All proceeds raised from SHEDINBURGH ticket sales went into a fund to support new artists to bring their work to the Edinburgh Festival in 2021 – A SHED LOAD OF FUTURE – sustaining and reinvigorating the Fringe’s Future.
